More Free Offers of Services for Bands Impacted by Coronavirus Cancellations

The only way the music community is going to come out on the other side of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic is by pulling together and helping each other. A lot of experts as saying it’s not going to come back the way it did before, and they might be right. But in the meantime let’s uplift each other and help each other make it through. Ghost Cult scribe and music marketing expert Matt Bacon has pulled together this list from across musicians, producers, journalists, and other music industry folks to offer help.

Matt Commented:

We are in the middle of a crazy time. I just wanted to take the time to compile here a

list of free services you can take advantage of as we try to come together and all help each

other as we face the craziest event in our lifetimes. If you have anything to add or corrections

please email me at
